My great friend and former CZW tag team partner (CKNY) and now podcaster (“Struggling with Sozio”) Nico Sozio (aka Niles Young, Jeff, J-Robb) and I sit down and record a conversation of much love and appreciation. Our talk goes all over the place in this Swapcast. I hope you’ll subscribe to his podcast and follow his Social Media!
Just weeks removed from CZW’s “Tangled Web”, “Bulldozer” Matt Tremont will come by the show to discuss his career, his feud with CZW Owner DJ Hyde, and the brutality he endored in the “Tangled Web”. Also, Omegasquad stops by to discuss Frankie Edgar’s move to Featherweight and title shot against Jose Aldo. We’ll also run down the rest of MMA’s 2012 schedule. Note: Kekoa’s interview was abruptly cut off due to issues with the blogtalkradio site. Apologies for the inconvienence. And, we say goodbye to Go Thompson.
This week on In the Room, former CZW (and current ECWA and TWA) tag team champions Bruce Maxwell and TJ Cannon … The Best Around … hop on for a special edition of the show. Plus, Brady Hicks and DJ check in with their thoughts on Retro Raw, Survivor Series, and Jeff Hardy’s new TNA title belt.
On Independent, Tag Team Wrestling
To be honest with you, on the independent scene, there are more great teams than anywhere else. Any time we get to wrestle a great tag team, you do have a challenge there. The independent scene is full of young, hungry guys that are looking to make their mark.
On Young and Up-and-Coming Teams, Such as The Logans:
We’ve seen and heard a lot about The Logans, but we’ve never actually competed with them until we got to the TWA. We were excited to get in the ring with them.
On Wrestling for the ECWA:
We’ve had our eyes on the ECWA for a long time. When we were younger, we used to read all about the [Super 8] tournaments in PWI.
On the Art of Tag Team Wrestling:
There are a lot of things we do to compliment each other. People are just going to have to buy a ticket and enjoy the ride. Wherever we’ve been, we’ve had success on our first time out. There’s always something out there to strive for.
This week on In the Room, DJ makes his long-awaited return, as he, Kevin McElvaney, and Brady Hicks gear up for next week’s big interview with former WWF star Jake “The Snake” Roberts. Topics of discussion include WWE’s Night of Champions show and its aftermath, who in WWE’s past is over- and under-rated, and Brady’s experience managing The Best Around against The Blue Meanie and Kid America.
This week on In the Room, Brady Hicks and the gang play a game of Russian Roulette with a fully loaded Eddie Kingston. Hear what the CHIKARA and Ring of Honor star thinks about a varety of topics. All that, plus discussion of WWE’s Money in the Bank pay per view. Apologies for some of the language.
On the POINT of Wrestling
A lot of the fans are jaded fans and I don’t blame them. At its most basic, wrestling is about seeing who would win a match and who the better man is. That’s why fans watch wrestling in the first place.
On Working with Tommy Dreamer
It was surreal. Very, very surreal. I remember going to the ECW Arena as a kid. Tommy was a huge inspiration for me. ECW itself was an inspiration. Those guys are who they are. They’re not “characters” … they’re themselves.
Mike Quackenbush put a lot of faith in me. He told me to go out there and just be me. I owe him so much for helping train me and allowing me to do what I do.
On TNA’s ECW Revival
I’m just happy that some of the ECW guys have jobs. I’m not going to knock it.
On the Daniel Bryan Fiasco
I hope he gets back there. I was realy into watching him on TV. Bryan, Low-Ki, and Homicide actually were all very influential to me. As a kid from the street I’m very proud to see them where they are, because they came from where I came from.
All that … plus, Eddie Kingston speaks on the prospect of wrestling for WWE, who he HATES on the Ring of Honor roster, and who he grew up idolizing in the 1980s NWA and WWF. Check it out at www.thebradyhicks.com.
